THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 16, 1999 – SATURDAY OCTOBER 2, 1999Six Square, a site-specific dance performance conceived by the Brooklyn-based experimental arts company J Mandle Performance, turned the space of Storefront inside-out. Dancers manipulated the positions of the rotating façade panels as they navigated between the threshold of the interior and the exterior of the gallery. This spatial investigation was mirrored in the multi-layered costumes worn by the dancers. Similar to the panels, the costumes were transformed by the dancers throughout the duration of the piece, calling into question the convergence of interior and exterior space, whether physical or psychological. As the performance took over the gallery and sidewalk, the audience was relocated to the street, challenging the traditional experience of viewing a performance.
